HOW IT WORKS 

for Concerts

All of our concerts are a la carte and your ticket price does not include the cost of any food or drink. 

You can find all of our menus for Concerts or Tavern dining by clicking HERE.

There is a $10 or $15 minimum per person for all shows depending on the location of your seats. Your patronage while here ensures that we will be able to continue to present quality entertainment in our intimate, friendly & locally owned business.

Thank you for supporting the independent venues that support local farms & live music!

Doors open for seating & dinner at 5:30 P.M. on weeknight shows & at 6:00 P.M. on Friday & Saturday shows. The doors opens two hours in advance to allow you time to dine so that we are not disturbing the performer during their show by clearing dishes, and you are not trying to eat while the lights are off! 

For all performances, you will have full table service for food & beverages to dine right in the same room where you see your show. Food, Beverage & Dessert service is available throughout the performance and is not included in your ticket price.

Your ticket purchase guarantees you a seat at a specific table. You do not need to make a separate dinner reservation. 

It does not guarantee you a specific seat. "Saving" seats is not allowed. You must be present in the room to choose the specific seat at your designated table. There are no bad or obstructed views. There is no seat further than 40 feet from the stage! However, occasionally we will include a dance floor at the artist's request for some shows which means dancing may occur near your table. Please consult the room diagram for your show to see whether there is a dance floor. If you do not want to be sitting next to a dance area, purchase your seat location accordingly.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL & TICKETS ARE NOT REFUNDABLE. If a show is postponed to another date, your ticket will automatically move to the new date. If for any reason you cannot make a rescheduled date, please contact our Front Desk @ 978-425-4311.

The Bull Run Code of Conduct & BE NICE Rule: 

The Bull Run has been in our family for 74 years. Over seven decades, we have established a strict "BE NICE" rule.

This means we encourage you to bring any concerns to the attention of ownership or management during your visit - not after the fact - and we will go out of our way to ensure your comfort and satisfaction.  

  • We do not tolerate hate speech, whether verbal or written on clothing.

  • We do not tolerate loud talking or other noise during performances and will ask you to leave if your behavior is disruptive to performers, staff or other patrons. 

  • We do not allow you to block the view of patrons near or behind you by standing or filming/photographing shows; you may move to the back of the room.

  • ALL of our wait staff, bar staff & managers in every room are T.I.P.S. Certified (Training & Intervention Procedures for Servers). We back them up 100% when they feel any patron should not be served, and The Bull Run reserves the right to refuse service in response to disrespectful behavior of any kind, particularly when it comes to our employees or performers.

  • The Bull Run is not responsible for the personal opinions expressed from the stage by performers. 

  • More than 95% of our shows are appropriate for all ages. If you have questions about a specific performance, we provide a write up on each performer on our ticket page & management will be happy to answer any questions.

Please contact us directly at 978-425-4311.
